Eat at Recess is a Food Truck that tries to put the fun back into lunchtime. It’s a callback to our childhood, naming sandwiches after school terms and bringing back some of our favorite school cafeteria foods like tater tots.

The owners of Recess want to remind us how lunch used to be when we were school kids. Cafeteria food, fresh air, playing games or on the playground with our friends.

The truck is one of the largest food trucks I’ve come across and comes equipped with an Xbox Kinect, allowing you to play games while you wait for your food and the motion sensitive kinect means you’ll be getting some exercise while playing too.

The highlight of the menu for me is definitely the tater tots. I didn’t particularly like school cafeteria food, but what I remember most fondly are tater tots. And it’s one of those foods that were readily available while we were in school, but almost impossible to find once I graduated. Other than finding them in the frozen food section of the grocery store, tater tots are pretty non-existent on a restaurant menu.

They offer three types of tater tots. Regular ones, remedial, and AP tots. Remedial tots are topped with a cheese and a spicy sauce. AP tots are topped with feta cheese and drizzled with truffle oil.

The pepperoni garlic knots I previously made were a big hit so I made them again but played around with the shape. On my last attempt I tried to emulate the shape from the restaurant I had eaten the knots at. This time, I tried making them more like traditional garlic knots.

Rather than stuffing the garlic knots with mini pepperoni, the pepperoni is sprinkled across the top of the knots.  I’m not quite sure which shape I like better, but this one was easier to make.


Ferry Plaza Farmers Market in San Francisco is one of the most well known farmers markets in the US and I’ve been wanting to visit for a very long time.

Last month when I was in SF with the FH, we finally got a chance to visit. The market is open three days a week (Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday) but Saturday is the best day to go because that is when the most vendors are in attendance. The market covers most of the front of the Ferry Plaza Building and then also runs in the rear of the building too. The rear area is also where most of the prepared food can be found.

I loved seeing all the fruits, vegetables and herbs.
